1. 'Embody' is definitely a much better word than 'present', and the tip is appreciated.
2. 'Deadly' vice 'wicked' is a hard call to make, though I do see your point. I would say though that 'wicked' applies to something more curvaceous and sleek like the Brit boomers, whereas 'deadly' would be much more straightforward like the Grayback class SSGs.
3. I'm having some trouble explaining to the Fair Melissa exactly how that pic applies to model warships, but the hell with it. I LIKE it.
